Miguel Torres v McDonald winner could get Barao   [View Full Version]

The winner of Miguel Torres' fight with Michael McDonald at UFC 145 could be propelled into a No. 1 contender bout in the bantamweight division, according to Renan Barao's coach.

Barao is comfortably the top contender for a shot at the 135lb champion, but Dominick Cruz is currently locked in a TUF series with Urijah Faber. Their fight will not take place until the summer, meaning Barao would have to wait until the end of the year for his next fight.

it also mentions that he says Menjivar is a possibility, but i think McDonald/Torres winner makes more sense.

i got high expectations for McDonald. he has looked really good in all his ufc fights, plus he's so young and already this good. it would be really cool to see him fight for a title.

Mcdonald vs Barao would be epic. Pitting the two biggest prospects in the weight class at the moment against each other would be exciting. The two have been taking the UFC by storm since they got there, and I for one would love to see the two fight to see who is really closer to the to title shot right now. I think the winner of a Torres/Mcdonald vs Barao would probably be one fight away from a title, if not the next in line for it.

Barao beats all of them IMO, guy is a beast, and Nova Uniao is a sick group of fighters.

I agree, especially if it goes 15. But I think Mayday is one of the only UFC 135ers with legit one punch knockout power. If he convincingly beats or finishes Torres, I may have to take Mayday over Barao. That's a big if though.

I see this as the same scenario as JDS vs Cain for #1 contendership...ie it shouldn't happen yet. Who else is there after the Barao/McDonald/Torres winner? No need to pit 2 top prospects-turned-contenders when there isnt a lineup of top contenders after them

I'm guessing you're joking because we all know Cruz/Faber 4 would be next
